You betcha! but... you might want to make sure and wait for someone else to confirm it as I am not confident. Better yet, why don't you give a call to the Verisign guys because they can answer you better...
There's a couple ways to do it. Like activeweb said, you could simply rename your .html file to something else and then your index.php file will become your default home page..
If you want to keep index.html the same file name but want index.php to be your home page do this:.
1. Create a new file in your root directory and give it the name .htaccess (if you don't already have that file - if you already have that file, simply open it and do the following)..
2. Open your .htaccess file and enter this line of code in it:.
DirectoryIndex index.php index.html.
This should now make index.php your home page without the need of renaming any files...
I've had a few wines now so I could be wrong but it seems to me this thread is so far missing the point..
I understand the poster to be saying (and please correct me if I'm wrong).
My Verisign site currently loads www.mysite.com/index.html.
And my shop currently loads as www.mysite.com/catalog/index.php.
What I want is ...
For people going to www.mysite.com to see my shop front..
If I am wrong please accept my apologies .. if not .. read on ...
Move all of the files in /catalog to your root directory (public_html probably).
You then need to alter two configure.php files ...
One is in includes the other in admin/includes.
Find all instances of catalog/ and delete them .. I'll clarify that ...
Would become ...
Hope that helps or at least makes some sense...
Try this : Make a new file index.php and place this code in it, obviously change your Verisign site name and place it directly into the root folder. It will then redirect the user to your catalog page.......
Many Thanks for your replies. Moving all files out of the Catalog file was enough to fix my small problem. Should of read the install instructions more thoroughly!..
How can I make the catalog/index.php my defualt home page.?.
My default page is currently index.html.
Any help greatly appreciated..
What kind of server r you running? IIS or Apache?.
By the way you can rename index.html to something else (like index2.html) this way you can make index.php default home page..
